Regina man facing firearms charges after Sunday night arrest

A 30-year-old Regina man is facing numerous weapons offenses after being taken into custody Sunday night.

Police were called to the 900 block of Elphinstone Street just after 9:00 p.m. after a man was seen waving what appeared to be a sawed-off firearm.

Once police arrived on the scene they found a person who matched the suspect’s description leaving out the back of a residence.

During the subsequent search, officers found a pellet gun and a handful of shotgun shells.

Thirty-year-old Michael Blueeyes has been charged with Possession of a Weapon for a Purpose Dangerous to Public Peace, Carrying a Concealed Weapon, and two counts of Possessing a Firearm or Ammunition Contrary to Prohibition.

The accused made his first court appearance on Monday.
